Earthy Boho Wimberley, TX Wedding at Cypress Falls Event Center *

Calling all Stevie Nicks fans–this wedding is for you! Saori and DeVante’s earthy boho wedding at Cypress Falls Event Center is giving us all of the rock n’ roll vibes. Rather than choosing to go down the traditional route, they decided to add personalized touches that spoke to who they are.

The guestbook was replaced with a stack of vinyl albums for people to sign and the seating chart was a world map labeled according to the places on their bucket list. Saori dawned a bell-sleeved lace Rue de Seine gown to harness her witchy goddess side, and rather than a suit, DeVante looked cool and casual in an outfit from Zara and Levi’s.

Oh, and there also happened to be llamas, tequila shots, a wine wagon, and a 90-year-old flower girl. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from these photos captured by T & V Photography, it’s that these two definitely know how to throw a party.

The Couple:

Saori and DeVante

The Wedding:

Cypress Falls Event Center, Wimberley, Texas

Earthy Wedding Day Vibes

Our wedding was a direct reflection of our style—bohemian wanderlusty earthiness -–inspired by travel, music, and the great outdoors. The seating chart for our guests was a world map, labeled according to the places on our bucket list. A guestbook was replaced by a stack of vinyl albums for people to sign “for the record.” Our “centerpieces” were inspired by the elements: fire (in the form of candlesticks), scavenged twigs, branches, and moss. It sounds like a hot mess, but it was so perfect, organic, and so us.

The Rue de Seine Gown

Stevie Nicks is and has been my style icon for a long time. I wanted to wear something ethereal that made me feel like a woodsy forest queen or a witchy earth goddess, and the Sia gown from Rue de Seine was my match made in witchy heaven.

Personalizing the Ceremony

We put our own twist on absolutely everything we could and shared so many laughs. I dropped a few F-bombs in my vows. DeVante spoke passionately from the heart and improvised his vows on the spot. I lovingly spoke of his butt hairs and smelly boots, and he made sure to mention my road rage. We had our 90-year-old grandma as one of our flower girls, and our dog,  Jax, stood in as a groomsman. The best part about the ceremony was taking shots of tequila with our wedding party and our officiant (who we met at a karaoke bar in Austin). It was amazing. It was us.

Why Cypress Falls Event Center

We always knew we wanted to marry in the Texas Hill Country. We came across Cypress Falls on The Knot and scheduled a tour immediately–we didn’t bother booking any tours anywhere else. It was everything we wanted. And sure enough, we knew we found the spot as soon as we pulled up. After we drank a beer with the owner, we basically begged her to take our money and locked everything down with no regrets. Best. Place. Ever.

Including Their Cultures

The two most important things for us to include were our families and our cultures. Nearly every single vendor was a Black or Brown owned business and we had a beautiful blend of R&B, reggae, and Mariachi music as the soundtrack to our big day.

The Couple’s Memorable First Dance

Our llamas escorted us in and we were surrounded by our favorite humans on the planet under twinkling lights. All of them surrounded us while we danced. We just felt the greatest sense of accomplishment because we finally made it. Who knew that a random night full of beer, smoke, and karaoke would bring our wild souls together? A love story 13.8 billion years in the making, finally coming together underneath the moon in Wimberley, TX—definitely a moment to remember.

Folksy Hudson Valley Backyard Wedding at Windrift Hall *

Folksy Hudson Valley Backyard Wedding at Windrift Hall *

We’re so glad that Katie and Todd opted for an autumn wedding at Windrift Hall rather than eloping–their original plan. One look at these photos had us cozying up with blankets and sipping pumpkin spice lattes. The couple pulled off a fresh fall backyard feel with minimal decor by letting the beauty of New York’s countryside do all of the talking.

Katie’s custom crochet gown from Reclamation paired perfectly with her wool hat from Will & Bear, and Todd dressed to the nines in his charcoal suit from Suit Supply. And we can’t get enough of Katie’s deep orange satin suit that she changed into for the reception.

The Couple:

Katie and Todd

The Wedding:

Windrift Hall, West Coxsackie, New York

Boho Wedding Style

Our style embodied natural, minimal, and stylish components with subtle boho elements. I wore a custom dress made of reclaimed crochet lace with leather mules. I accessorized with a wide brim hat and gold-capped quill earrings. My husband wore a charcoal jacket, a brown crimson tie, black pants, and loafers. We didn’t have a traditional bridal party. Instead, I encouraged my girlfriends to wear something they felt reflected their style best.

Personalizing The Ceremony With Family

It was always our goal to have our guests feel like a part of our ceremony. One thing we did was pass our rings around to each guest so that each person could hold, kiss, or whisper kind thoughts on our marriage and link each person there. It’s so much more meaningful knowing that we are wearing everyone’s blessings on our hands! We also wrote and shared vows with our families to express our gratitude and love for them. The love shared was remarkable.

Why Windrift Hall

Our goal was always to have an intimate, backyard wedding without having to host the weekend at one of our homes. Going through Airbnb gave us the at-home experience we wanted. It also gave us flexibility when choosing our vendors, and acted as a place for some of our guests to stay for the entire weekend.

Permanent Wedding Invites + Other DIY Touches

We designed our wedding invitations (and eventually got them tattooed!) We also made our wedding favors, dinner menus, and sourced our slate table serving trays from a family member.
